UW Honors teaching honor!

Sharing deeply moving feedback from teaching at UW in 2012.

Dear Paul,
The Honors Program is designed as a space where unusual things can happen, and your course exemplifies the best of these possibilities. I have never read student evaluations like yours. I think that every teacher wants his course to be exceptional, but it seldom happens. In your case however, the course made something live that students scarcely knew existed before enrolling. There is a tone of amazement in their comments that such a phenomenon could occur in a college classroom.
